    I recently downloaded window7 to put on a different computer with the understanding that I could burn cd's to put the new O S on the different computer, how ever the original computer says that the 2.4 gig program wont fit on the 700 meg disk, I absolutly understand that and logicly so, Is there a solution for that????

    thank you!:eek:

    Windows 7 Will not burn to a CD without MAJOR compression and you will not manage to run the setup from the disk with the compressed files.

    You can only really burn the image to a DVD. There just isn't enough space for the Operating system on a CD
